The Minnesota Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court ruling saying “no” to five people claiming to be half-siblings of Prince who want part of his multi-million-dollar estate. One group of four claimed that their father, Loyal Gresham Junior, was Prince’s biological parent, while another woman claimed her father Albert Jackson was Prince’s dad. But a special administrator overseeing distribution of the estate determined John Lewis Nelson was Prince’s “genetic father” under Minnesota law. The district court threw out claims of the others and the appeals court agreed, saying because John L. Nelson is Prince’s presumptive father under the parentage act, he is the only person who can be his “genetic father” under probate law which governs distribution of an estate when there is no will. The ruling re-affirms six heirs to Prince’s estate: his sister, Tyka Nelson, plus five half-siblings.
